Photo globe of the Mary Had a Little Lamb statue in Sterling, MA. Possibly the winner for the smallest town to manufacture a snowglobe.
This limited-production snowglobe is from Sterling, Massachusetts, a town in Worcester County with a population of 7,257. Sterling is famous as the hometown of Ebenezer Butterick, who revolutionized home sewing, and Mary Sawyer, of "Mary Had a Little Lamb" fame.
This historically true poem is commemorated with a small sculpture of a lamb on the town green, pictured in this snowglobe. This snowglobe almost definitely represents the smallest town in the MoMS collection.
